“An excellent tour option”
Review of Overland Canyon Tours - CLOSED

Overland Canyon Tours
Attraction details
Reviewed June 6, 2009

Reading some of the reviews on here made me worried that the Canyon would resemble a zoo - nothing could be further from the truth.

There are regular tours from the centre of Page - all close to Safeway - and all at a decent price. I went on the 12:!5 tour with Overland Tours, and the whole experience was excellent.

I chose this tour purely as I'd arrived in Page 30 mins earlier, and it was so easy to book and join the tour - there were 5 of us on the tour. Although this is one of the non-Navajo-operated tours, I don't think this detracted too much from the experience (although I've had some excellent Navajo tours in Monument Valley etc).

The tour guide was excellent - we weren't rushed. and she took her own digital camera, and then showed us the shots as she took them of the more difficult to spot images in the rocks - that made a real difference, as often you couldn't see them until you were shown this image.

There were others in the Canyon when we arrived (about 12:30 in early June that was to be expected), but everybody co-operated with each other, and nobody was too "precious" about their shots that they didn't want others to see them. Once we'd slowed up to let the other group get ahead we had the various scenes to outselves - and in fact once they'd reached the bottom of the canyon you couldn't even hear them, so you had the feeling there were only 6 of us in the entire canyon - at one of the peak times !

The guide also helped capture the light effects by throwing up some sand - but then we reached a point where the sand was falling naturally due to it being a windy day outside - again a pseudo-pro camera person might not be happy with this - but you can't stop nature !

An excellent experience.
